1st Set: Let's tune for about 100 seconds. We all knew that either tonight or tomorrow we'd be sent to "Hell." Despite the lack of strength in bobby's voice it's a ride worth taking. The following "Sugaree" is lucid and well strung together. Jerry's high-pitched solo embellishments are wondrous. (Listen to the stuff in the 6 minute range.)A gusto performance. Time for the ironically pre- titled "Good Times." Brent's giving it his vocal all (1:50-2:20) His tinkling also helps rise "Cumberland" past average status. Not to mention that the band is n'sync. Anyways, the perkyness continues with some polky "Mexicali." "FOTD" is well-harmonized, and Jerry is just on a roll tonight, (solo-6:15-6:40) and he saves "Esau" from standard with his work, and Mickey's active backbeat. Considering the strength of the set so far, there are high expectations for this "Bird." They're partially met, it's liltingly lovely and quite forceful (6:40,) but it is Not an epic, momentous version. But, the set is not yet over. Instead of the easy "Promised" way out, the boys elect to try their hand with some "Music." Jerry's guitar reaches a Young-like late 70's raggedness.

2nd Set: Who's not enthusiastic when we take a trip to "China?" It's a rollicking good time, and there was some hands in the air by the time 5:50-6:20 rolls around. "Rider" is a tad more subdued, but it only raises our yearning to be blown away by Bobby and Jerry's verses. And we are, more by the collective energy than their respective voices. The festivities continue with Bobby's civics gender lesson, "Man Smart." Terrapin is beatific, and grows more vitrolic the deeper we head into those waters. The end of "Drums" pierces your lungs, and heads right for the vulnerability of your soul. Space is mostly loud and nasty leading to a ferocious, if waaay too short "OO." A well-intentioned and strong Jerry leads a fetally Hammond "Fantasy." We quickly segue to the "Wharf." It's pretty good, but the members have checked out of making a personal connection with the audience. Bobby does a credible job of driving the frenzy of a compact "Lovelight."
The drunken party should extend far into the night as signified by a deterministic "Quinn."

A far better representative of the positive qualities of an '87 show. 3 1/2 stars.

Subject: take a chance
i took a chance and downloaded this show although there was no stars,nobody reveiwed it and it's an aud.recording but i was very suprised.

the quality of the recording is pretty good!
it's got a nice list!
and they play their hearts out!

really bangin' show!
sometimes in the quest to get only the best sound quality you end up looking over some good shit just because it's an aud.

i'd still really dig a sbd. or healy mix though.
a 4 because it's an aud. performance gets a 6
and bobby gets a 10

this was the FIRST REVIEW.
